I like racing at Hog Hill – Whether it’s ‘cross, mountain bike or road, the courses are always brutal, well organised and interesting. It was the perfect race for me to quietly launch my new team, THE VELO HOUSESCOTT CYCLING.

“No Shortcuts. It’s how we design. How we ride. How we think. We could talk all day about specs, features, technologies, innovations and on and on – and some days we do. But the truth is the reason that we do what we do is because we’re just as obsessed with the road, the trail and with every challenge and triumph that happens in the saddle as you are. We make bikes for those that want to get lost in the experience. For some SCOTT athletes, that means reaching the pinnacle of the sport and wearing the Maillot Jaune or World Champion jersey. For others it simply means taking the long way home after work. Whether it’s maximizing efficiency at both 27.5” and 29” or getting the absolute most out of every gram of carbon on our frames, when we say “No Shortcuts,” it’s not just the way we build our bikes; it’s also how we hope you use them…”

That’s quite a manifesto, but when I read it, it makes sense – it’s how we run the shop, workshop and cafe. It’s how I ride my bike. And it’s how I want my team to work. If you’d like to be considered for the team please send me an email explaining why or ask for me at The Velo House.
